    • New Featurette Woodstock: Creating Snoopy's Sidekick


    A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving
    Charlie Brown and the gang learn the true meaning of Thanksgiving after Peppermint Patty boldly arranges for everyone to celebrate the holiday at Charlie's house. The story originally aired on television and like the other animated Peanuts specials, features a toe-tapping, wistful score by Vince Guaraldi and his trio. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

    Woodstock: Creating Snoopy's Sidekick
    You're Not Elected, Charlie Brown
    Politics take precedence among the Peanuts set in this classic animated special from the remarkable imagination of Charles M. Schulz. The race for student body president is heating up, but does Charlie Brown really have a shot at winning the election? Realizing that the odds aren't in his favor after Lucy takes a poll of the entire student body, Charlie makes the decision to back the campaign of his old pal Linus. And why not? Linus is running on a pro-recess, anti-homework platform that gives him a decided edge over his fellow political hopefuls. It would seem that Linus is bound for the to take top office. But while the voters all seem fully prepared to cast their ballots for Linus, a thoughtless mention of that holiday figure said to rise from the pumpkin patch every Halloween and deliver toys to the most "sincere" little girls and boys may be enough prompt even his most ardent supporters to consider withdrawing their support. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Play It Again, Charlie Brown
    This animated short is based on Charles Schultz's popular comic strips and follows along as the gang prepares for a concert. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

    There's No Time for Love, Charlie Brown
    In this family-oriented animated adventure, poor Charlie Brown struggles to get a decent grade on his report about their recent field trip to an art museum. The trouble is, he and his pal Peppermint Patty got separated from the others and ended up in a supermarket. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

    It's a Mystery, Charlie Brown
    This 30-minute Peanuts cartoon special concentrates on the antics of Charlie Brown's sister Sally and his dog Snoopy. Sally is stuck for a "show and tell" subject for school. She borrows the nest belonging to Snoopy's bird friend Woodstock, hoping to pass it off as a "prehistoric" bird's nest. When Woodstock reports his missing home to Snoopy, the ever-resourceful beagle transforms himself into a canine version of Sherlock Holmes to locate the thief. It's a Mystery, Charlie Brown was first telecast February 1, 1974. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown
    The Peanuts gang celebrates the coming of spring in this animated TV special. Linus has promised all his friends that the Easter Beagle will soon be arriving to bring candy and colored eggs to the neighborhood children. Unfortunately, after his many miscalculations with the Great Pumpkin, not everyone is so sure that the holiday hound will actually show up. Meanwhile, Snoopy helps Woodstock find the birdhouse of his dreams, Peppermint Patty discovers teaching Marcie how to make Easter Eggs is no walk in the park, and Sally buys a new pair of shoes for spring. Originally aired on April 9, 1974, It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown was the twelfth in the long-running series of animated specials featuring the characters of Charles M. Schulz's popular comic strip. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
